RICHMOND, Va. – (Monday, December 21, 2020) – The Richmond Kickers have re-signed midfielder Jonathan Bolanos for the 2021 season, pending USL League One and USSF approval.
"Jonathan is an exciting attacking player that scored an incredible goal and created others for us in 2020,” said Chief Sporting Officer and Head Coach Darren Sawatzky. “We are thrilled to have his arsenal at our disposal for the coming year. We feel that he will cause havoc to opposing defenses and we should see him climb the scoring charts in 2021."
Making an immediate impact on the season, Bolanos came off the bench at Greenville in the season opener and set up the second goal of the night with his first professional assist. The first two goals of his pro career came as a first half brace against Orlando City B at City Stadium October 7, earning him a spot on USL League One Team of the Week for Week 13. In the 15 matches he played in, Bolanos found a way to be impactful in every chance he could. He led the team in crosses (30) and was tied for third on the roster with 13 chances created throughout the season.
